British comedian Russell Brand is being lined up to appear in 'The Simpsons' and gushes about his girlfriend Katy Perry
Russell Brand is going to be in 'The Simpsons'.
The British funnyman - who is currently promoting new film 'Get Him to the Greek ' in London - has revealed he will soon be appearing in the long running cartoon.
He told The Sun newspaper: "It's true I'm going to be in 'The Simpsons'. I was having an amazing birthday party and found out I was going into space. Then my agent says, 'Oh, 'The Simpsons' want you in an episode.' Once you've gone yellow, you've made it."
The actor - who used to present 'Big Brother's Big Mouth' - is so excited about voicing the part of a cartoon alter-ego, he has his own idea of how he wants the episode to go.
He added: "My ideal show would be where I have a cartoon relapse with Barney and Homer and get smashed out of my mind with them."
Russell is currently planning his wedding to pop star Katy Perry, who he has praised for supporting him in his TV and film career.
He added: "I'm really, really in love. At the beginning of a relationship it's exciting and kind of volatile. Now it's like she's a friend, supportive and really lovely, so I'm completely happy with that."
